Guest stars in this set include John Standing, Zeljko Ivanek (Homicide: Life on the Street), Michael Chiklis (The Shield), Dann Florek (Law and Order, Law and Order SVU) and Courtney Thorne - Smith (Melrose Place) among a host of others. We also get to see the introduction of Diana Muldaur as Rosalind Shays, a recurring charcter for the next two years.
Just another four sets to go after this release.

Arguably the strongest season so far. The law firm is in trouble, urgently needing to generate more money. Rainmaker Rosalind Shays is invited to save the day, but quickly alienates. Is she to prove a cuckoo in the nest, ousting the others and taking control? Should rich clients be accepted with such dodgy backgrounds as links with Apartheid? What if their wealth is used as a weapon to deter the firm from taking on controversial cases? In short, are cash concerns in danger of undermining integrity?

22 episodes. (No extras.) Great scripts. Fine cast. As ever, very interesting court cases with persuasive arguments for and against - we perhaps relieved not to be on the juries having to decide. Amongst issues under scrutiny? Killing animals for fur, sterialization of the handicapped, a surgeon's refusal to operate on a man dying from AIDS, responsibility for war crimes, a priest withholding absolution for a woman practising birth control - she promptly having a breakdown at the prospect of hell. Again come concerns about euthanasia and, harrowingly, the death penalty.

This may all seem most grim but, rest assured, there continues to be much romance and fun (including mirth at some of the wigs). Diminutive David Rappaport returns as the wily lawyer taking on Jimmy Smits' towering Victor. The issue is dwarf-throwing as pub entertainment. Who supports? Who defends? Here and elsewhere, take nothing for granted!

Amongst so much to admire, Richard Dysart as Leland McKenzie particularly impresses. Over the years the firm he founded has become like a family. What for it now? Will all come apart?

Great. The series is truly on a roll. No wonder it earned such praise and awards!

Season 4 is more of the same with the tough lawyers at McKenzie brackman where Deputy DA Grace van owen is now partner. If you loved the previous seasons then this is for you. A show not afraid to tackle the hard issues of the day. The most notable episode called Blood, Sweat and Fears about a doctor who refused to operate on a patient who had AIDS and which won the show another Emmy.

Terrific program-Great writing and cast. I would recommend this program. I look forward to viewing the episodes. Would like more behind the screen commentaries on some of the episodes.

Currently rewatching LA Law. For me this season is the best season so far. The cases are riveting and the office politics take centre stage. A great season.

I was concerned about the lack of subtitles but this season is not difficult to hear. My husband has severe hearing problems but he was able to watch this and hear 99% of the dialogue. The only time we had difficulty was when people whispered. We watched LA Law every night when it was broadcast years ago and loved the show. This is an excellent transfer by Revelation. We are very pleased and enjoyed the show. If you have hearing problems you might not be able to hear everything but you should be able to hear most of the dialogue.

It was a great show in the day but is very dated now which is something you do forget. I do love the show though.
